Anti-circumvention

On September 8th, 2015, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of graphite electrodes from the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom (Circular No. 57, 08.09.2015).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution No. 5 dated January 28th, 2015 on imports of graphite electrodes from China might be circumvented (see related intervention).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3801.1000 and 8545.1100.
The complaint was lodged on July 1st, 2015 by Graftech Brasil Participações Ltda. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on September 9th, 2015.

On 15 February 2016, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade terminated the anti-circumvention investigation (Circular No. 9, 12.02.2016).
